Survival analysis of patients with idiopathic dilated cardiomyopathy in Oman


, : Survival analysis of patients with idiopathic dilated cardiomyopathy in Oman. Saudi Medical Journal 26(2): 220-224

Objective: To study the 10-year survival of adults with idiopathic dilated cardiomyopathy (IDC) in Oman.Methods: Ninety-seven patients aged > 13 years with IDC attending the Cardiology Unit, Sultan Qaboos University Hospital, Muscat, Oman from 1992-1995 were prospectively studied, in order to identify the outcome and factors contributing to death.Results: Among 97 patients, 2 died from acute heart failure at presentation.

The coating of J-negative erythrocytes in vitro by soluble J substance of cattle serum was inhibited by a blocking factor in the serum. In over 200 cattle tested, the blocker behaved as a lipoid substance that could be removed from serum by extrac...
